Background and Challenges
RTA is the organization in charge of managing the public transportation in Dubai; therefore it needed to have a control center to carry out security surveillance throughout the city. As a result, an extensive project began in which GESAB was finally able to contribute all its know-how and experience.
THALES is engaged in the development of information systems and services for the aerospace, defense and security sectors, it had worked together with GESAB on several projects. The good results and previous experiences made GESAB again able to develop a comprehensive and innovative proposal for the EC3.
A project, which right from the start was a challenge for the high level of demand and for the development of a proposal for 7 rooms.
Functionality, innovation, integration of the highest technology and a personalized design. GESAB was able to develop and execute a project in which close work with the client and how to understand their needs was the key to success.
GESAB was in charge of developing the technical furniture for 7 rooms of the EC3 Command and Control Center: Main Control Room, Security OCC, Tram back up room, IT SOC Room, Lecture Room, Gold and Silver Rooms. The state-of-the-art consoles were completely customized with state-of-the-art design, thanks to the ACTEA Inverter. The backlit logos on the sides are a corporate reflection, enhancing the brand image.
The whole proposal includes state-of-the-art audiovisuals and 24/7 chairs, all this complying the highest standards in ergonomics and quality.
On May 22nd, Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktum, Prime Minister and Vice-President of the United Arab Emirates officially inaugurated the complex’s facilities. The EC3 Command and Control Center will become particularly important during the 2020 Expo in Dubai, a time of special affluence in the city.
The result is an innovative control center, with the best performance and finishes, integrated technology and unique designs. It’s an unparalleled project for facilities where the future becomes a reality today.
